Needle Roll Exchange for Gwen

I heard from Gwen tonight that she has received the HoE Needle Roll Exchange that I sent to her. I chose an autumnal theme for her, which worked out well as Gwen let me know that, like so many of us , she likes autumn's colors.
Fall Leaves Needleroll

Sekas & Co.

Kiwi Illusions 32 ct Cappuccino Belfast Linen, DMC and ThreadWorx Floss


And the rest of my goodies for her...

Now off to either work on a PIF or my Halloween Fairy...
**Edited to add:

I chose to work on both, actually. Here is Halloween Fairy, and all she needs now is a few crimson Kreinik stitches (I still don't have that braid yet) and a whole lotta beading ;-)
Stitched on today: Stitched on Halloween Fairy and on a PIF gift

Oh my, look at that Halloween Fairy! I can't belieieieieve how quickly you stitched this one! It sort of makes me think I could do something like this, too, which of course I totally can't.
